Thailand’s Sickest – Hell To Pay

The 2nd in the Thailand's Sickest series. Read it and let me know what you think...
The second in the Thailand’s Sickest series. Read it and let me know what you think…

The second book in the Thailand’s Sickest series has been released and is doing pretty well at Amazon, Apple, and other online marketplaces. There are links to buy it at the bottom of this page.

Hell To Pay came out of nowhere, as a guy emailed me about the first book, and I didn’t know what to make of his email. He seemed a bit too interested in me, and I was wondering whether he might be psychotic. I cranked out the entire book in just a couple of months because the story basically wrote itself. It’s fiction, and yet there are some elements of truth woven within the pages. See if you guess what is fiction and what is true.

If you’re enjoying this series, let me know through email what you liked or didn’t. I’m considering a third book in the series, and I’ve had some great responses from readers of the first two books. I could always use more feedback.

Note – this second book – Hell To Pay – is only available at Amazon for the moment.

Short description
An expatriate sniper assassin retired from the business, ends up in Bangkok, where he tries to redeem himself by protecting ‘working girls.’ Known as Jai Dee – Good Heart – he finds happiness with a former working girl until a killer invades the city. Now he must seek help from other expatriates to help him rid Bangkok of this terrible menace – but what will that task truly cost him?

This is the 2nd book in the Death Spiral series, James Boedeker. The first, Book 1, was mentioned here.

I enjoyed this book a lot, the dynamics between the main character and others is interesting, and damn funny if you ask me. I am looking forward to reading Jim’s third book here on my next visa run to Cambodia.

Short description
A guy in Thailand, haunted by the ghosts of his past, lives on a diet of booze and prostitutes – and milkshakes. To redeem himself, he needs to help the scarred young woman at Dairy Queen, and maybe the ghosts will leave him in peace. But there’s no peace for a trained killer whose inner beast demands vengeance against those who victimize others. He’s in a death spiral to get it done.

This is Book 1. Read this first.

Jim Boedeker and I were first introduced online through email a few years back. His background was intriguing as hell, and we met in Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand one weekend. Jim’s life story is flat-out amazing. Though this, his first book, is all fiction, I am hoping to read his biography at some point. He undoubtedly has had the most interesting life of anyone I’ve ever known.

Pick up a couple of these books from JB and keep your eye out for more coming up in the near future. Jim is a writing machine, and is cranking out books a couple times a year.
